RegionSmart summit returns April 27, 2017 at Halloran Centre.

Second annual gathering of Mayors and civic leaders from throughout the Mid South to discuss future of workforce development, transportation and land use.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Jim Johnson. Dr. Johnson will reprise his popular presentation from last year about the demographic trends that are shaping the future of the United States and the American south.
  • Peter Kageyama. Mr. Kageyama’s renowned exploration of “the love affair between people and their cities” shows how we can build a stronger bond with the places we live; spoiler alert: its not what local governments and local politicians think.
  • Ellen Dunham-Jones. Ms. Jones, a charter member of the Congress for the New Urbanism, Georgia Tech professor and “architectural theorist” has spoken around the world about the emerging field of sprawl repair and redesigning surburbia to be more productive, valuable, and livable.
  • Michael Randle. Mr. Randle’s “Randle Report” has been a go-to tipsheet for political and economic news from the American south for years. He’ll share his analysis of the factors shaping today’s workforce needs and how cities and counties can work together to meet them.
  • Paulo Nunes-Ueno is the former director of transportation mobility for the city of Seattle and Seattle Children’s Hospital and is a nationally-renowned expert in sustainable transportation and effective urban solutions for transit, mobility and parking. He specializes in helping cities, neighborhoods, and major employers develop innovative plans that safely and efficiently meet the varied transportation needs of workers, residents, and visitors. Paulo last visited Memphis in October 2016 as part of the Memphis Medical District Collaborative and Innovate Memphis’ parking summit.
  • Mayor Joe Riley is the former Mayor of Charleston, South Carolina, where he served ten terms between 1975 and 2016. During his four-decade tenure, Mayor Riley led Charleston with an progressive and innovative record advancing public safety, affordable housing, arts and culture, parkland and public spaces, and economic development. He is currently a professor of American Government and Public Policy at The Citadel and speaks extensively on urban development issues.
